Les Enfants du paradise
In my opinion, one of the greatest movies ever made. If possible you should see the entire film. Truly remarkable!

Selling Apples as Oranges
I havent seen (though I want to) Les Enfants du Paradis yet, but this trailer for the American release, tries to water down the movie to make it palpable to American audiences. I mean, Its a picture about people like you and me, people who live and die, people who love and suffer.. Where do they get these lines from? Also, theres a critic note that one of the female stars of the show represents sex appeal as it is recognized anywhere except in Hollywood. Was that a compliment or an insult? Fairly weird trailer.
